[bottle] Nice golden copper color, with zero foam. Slightly hazy. Aroma is so damn interesting... kind of fruity, like "Smarties" candy or something, but real funky. Flavors are bracingly acidic at first, with plenty of fruity esters to fill things out. I personally like the fact that this is somewhat still, it helps you focus on the powerful funk within. Very nice.

Bottle, enjoyed ten years after bottling. Pours clear golden orange, with a very small rocky head. Aroma is hay, light berries, wooden brett and funky farmhouse. Medium body, with soft to no carbonation. Flavour is sour, acidic fruity notes, wine grapes, floral bretty notes, wooden barrels and funky farmhouse.

Hoprider (453) - DENMARK - OCT 14, 2016
2006 bottle. Pours rusty golden, not a trace of head. Nose: Apple, leather, mineral sweet prune. Taste: sour kick, citric apples, tart citrus pulp and a teaish bretty aftertaste along with the tart lemon peel. No real carb but you knew that. Lived up to expectations which were not all too high but still after holding on to a beer for 10 years you wish for it to be drinkable. And it was. Very much so.

Pours a murky orange with effervescent bubbles around the glass, but devoid of lacing. The aroma is cola, stale hops and vinegar

Ysok02 (1037) - MOns, BELGIUM - SEP 19, 2016
Très belle robe dorée, reflets ambrés, pas de mousse. Nez typé sur des notes de lambic, un coté balsamique, notes de céréales, noyau de cerise, fin boisé, très élégant. Bouche à l’attaque fruitée, finement acidulée, une belle élégance, de la tension et une finale acidulée sans aucune agressivité. Une très belle gueuze tout en finesse.

Zurig lambiek-aroma met een fruitige toets. Smaak en afdronk zijn zacht zurig en droog-fruitig. Speciaal, maar kan toch niet tippen aan de Oude Geuze...
